The Sandhills Sandsharks Swim Team was founded in 1982 by Marsey Peterson, an ASCA Age Group Coach of the Year and mother of current SSS Board President Lindley Fleury (High School All-American, Collegiate All American, Indiana University, National and World Masters Champion).  Marsey moved to the Sandhills with her husband when he retired from the military.  She realized the community lacked competitive swimming and access to swim lessons. Over the ensuing decades, her efforts and those of the coaches who followed her yielded a growing, successful team.
